At the MVP meeting, Big Brother announced that Spencer, not Howard, had been nominated. Elissa had clearly been listening to Beyonce: She’s a grown woman, and she does whatever she wants. By random drawing GinaMarie and Candice are competing with Kaitlin, Aaryn and Spencer for PoV. Jeremy is nervous because the whole house has been so unsubltle with its bloodlust to shut down “Beast Mode” even he knew he’s getting backdoored at the first available opportunity.

This puts Kaitlin in a difficult position: If she wins PoV and takes herself off the block, Jeremy will be put up in her place and be sent home. She explains to the camera the only way out of this hellscape is for her friend GinaMarie to win the veto, but then decline to use it. That way Bottle of Sunshine with a Cold, Black Heart Aaryn can be sent home. But even if GinaMarie wins the veto, Kaitlin can’t be sure she’ll do what she wants: GinaMarie is also friends with Aaryn, and may take her off the block instead. “It’s crazy how things change,” Aaryn said to Kaitlin about the shifting power. “I want to throw up just thinking about you.” “The feeling is mutual, Aaryn,” America replied.

Amanda, on a Real Talk kick after first telling Aaryn she’s a raging racist and also calling out Aaryn and Kaitlin for being mean to Jessie and Candice, tried to spread a little truth to Kailin prior to the PoV competition by telling her that if she wins but doesn’t use the veto, she’ll go home herself. “But, but, Aaryn!” Kaitlin feebly protested. “Aaryn isn’t as big of a threat as Jeremy,” Amanda said. “If you stand in the way, the house will get you instead.” Kaitlin is in one hell of a trashy summer television Catch-22.

The actual veto competition was a hodge podge of crazy that the Big Brother House is famous for. Keeping Up With The Joneses required each contestant to set up several pieces of art exactly how it was in their “neighbors” house on the other side of a wall. The only way to see over the wall was to jump on a trampoline. The person that got all the art pieces in the right order in the fastest amount of time was the winner. The famous art pieces – like the Mona Lisa and Michelangelo’s painting of Adam – were photoshopped with Big Brother contestants for a gag-gift-ready twist. If these art pieces aren’t available on tomorrow, I’m going to be as devastated as GinaMarie was when Nick peaced out of the house.

Speaking of Nick, someone in production is having a laugh making one of the art pieces feature him. GinaMarie said it gave her the strength to continue! She’s got to be playing into this storyline, right? 22 days! They’ve known each other for 22 days (and Nick’s been out of the house for a week of that!). It’s an insanely short amount of time for everyone that isn’t named Taylor Swift. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22 like GinaMarie should spend some time in a showmance with herself for a bit. In other competition news, Spencer was a mess (Amanda's assessment was dead-on), and despite a strong showing from Candice, Kaitlin won the POV.
